An album reflecting on solitude. The new Solo Piano presents music of Alban Berg, Rudolf Hindemith, Sufjan Stevens, Tori Amos, Timbe Timbre and compositions by the artist himself. Wollny’s masterstroke has been to create a highly individual world, a truly personal dialogue with these extremely contradictory elements. It is a world which will captivate and enchant any listener from the moment they become immersed in it.

Sometimes it’s easier to live a life of solitude when you’re… alone? That’s what Michael Wollny is on Mondenkind. Actually, he’s not completely alone. He’s surrounded by names such as Alban Berg, Rudolf Hindemith, Sufjan Stevens, Tori Amos and the Canadian group Timber Timbre. Through revisiting pieces from this eclectic decade-crossing list, the German pianist reflects on loneliness with his usual open-minded attitude. Two thirds of the compositions on this solo album are his own. Recorded in Berlin’s Teldex studio in in April 2020, it feels like he’s searching for a sound on this record. The sound of his instrument perhaps. He also explores his relationship with classical music, which is at the heart of this beautiful record. A brilliant journey inwards. – Max Dembo
